Lib Dem Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Chris Huhne MP, has announced plans to allow councils to produce their own green energy and then sell this back in to the national grid.
You can find out more details on the proposals by reading the press release on the Liberal Democrat website.
This is a good campaign for local Liberal Democrats to adopt as it can be used to show off our green credentials and the difference made by having Liberal Democrats in government. It is also a good way of lobbying your local council to take the initiative on developing green energy and if you are running the council a potential way of generating income.
The campaign materials available include:
- A motion to put forward at a full council meeting.
- A letter to send to the local press (MS Word).
- Artwork for two possible stories you can put in a local Focus leaflet (PagePlus)
- A press release to send to your local press (MS Word)
